Best Postal Socks for Summer

When summer arrives along with warm weather, you start to see the emergence of flip-flops and sandals. However, if you’re on your feet all day, it is important to wear socks for added cushioning and to provide extra protection for your feet to help prevent against blisters and other foot ailments.  Your socks don’t have to be made of a heavy material for the summer though.  Here are the top summer postal socks you can choose from:



Postal Quarter Socks:  These are a must for summer and a favorite of postal workers with the shorter sock length. Made of 75% Cotton, 20% Nylon, and 5% Lycra® Spandex.



Mini Crew Socks: These socks have been specially designed to reduce fatigue caused by extensive walking and standing.  The midweight padding added at the ball and heel of sock provides extra protection against blisters, shock impact and abrasions, while the moisture wicking THOR.LON® keeps feet dry.



X-Static® Postal Crew Socks: New socks from ProFeet® are naturally antimicrobial to help eliminate odor and transport moisture away from the foot. These postal socks also include mesh channels to allow for air circulation. Made of 75% Cotton, 17% Nylon, 5% Lycra® Spandex, and 3% X-Static in sole.

All socks reviewed are reimbursable with your postal allowance card. What is your favorite sock to wear in the summer?
